Angelonias

Also known as Summer Snapdragons, these eye-catching annuals feature beautiful spikes of flowers rising above the foliage from late spring to frost. A great choice for hot, sunny beds and borders, mixed in containers with a filler-and-spiller format or in an eye-catching specialty pot. Angelonias are heat and humidity tolerant, requiring little maintenance other than dead-heading spent bloom stalks to encourage more future blooms. Grows well in wet or dry soil, but don’t overwater. Varieties sold here at Creekside Nursery are Purple Improved, Angel Mist Pink and Angel Mist Bluebird in 2 gallon TC pots.

Dynamo Geraniums

The Dynamo line of Geraniums boasts of blooming early and continuously with more blooms per plant than most other varieties. With a mounding habit, they are perfect for garden beds, to define a stunning border and in containers of all kinds. The Dynamo family performs best in rich, well-drained soil and only needs water when the soil below the surface is dry. Considered heat and drought tolerant, they prefer full sun. Deadhead the spent blooms to encourage even more flowering. Sold here at Creekside Nursery in 2 gallon TC pots. Call for yours today!

All these Coleus perform well in sun to shade and are tolerant of warm temperatures and humidity making them perfect for Texas gardens, containers and hanging baskets.

Shock Wave Petunia Hanging Baskets

For Spring 2019 we’re offering two colors of the Shock Wave Petunias in a hanging basket format – Deep Purple and Pink Vein. With a fully mounding, yet spreading growth habit, these gorgeous plants are perfect for tight spaces as well as containers of all types. Usually the first line of Petunias to start blooming in early Spring, they continue to flower all the way into late Fall in most areas. Highly weather resistant, they can stand up to wind and rain and can tolerate short periods of extreme heat and cold. All Wave Petunias prefer sunny spots, and the colors of the Shock Wave line actually deepen in full sun.

Coleus

Several varieties of Coleus have been added to our current Availability and they are stunning! They love the heat, but will grow as annuals in just about any garden. They are only hardy outside in Zone 11, but can be grown as houseplants year-round with appropriate lighting. The Kong line is good in shade and part-sun. The Burgundy Sun Coleus is aptly named because its darker foliage performs better with sun and produces its most vivid color in bright sunlight. Coleus does bloom, but the small flowers are fairly insignificant in comparison to the beautiful foliage. Most gardeners simply pinch off the bloom stalks to encourage more vigor to the colored leaves.
